Treating unwanted acne
Acne is the most common skin condition and is experienced by people of all ages, some more severely than others. Astanza Duality Q- Switched treatments offer a beneficial solution to unwanted breakouts.
Acne, medically referred to as acne vulgaris, is a skin disease that involves the overproduction of oil in the sebaceous glands. The clogging of pores leads to bacterial infection, painful inflammation, and unsightly blemishes. Although acne is largely experience by adolescents, almost 20% of all acne cases are experienced by adults.
The use of intense pulsed light therapy has proven to be very effective for treating acne vulgaris and slowing the production of excessive oils. The Astanze Duality Q- Switched is a noninvasive solution that is safe to use on all skin types.
The Acne Laser Treatment procedure
The Astanza Duality Q- Switched targets safe pulses of light energy to eliminate acne at its source. The light energy is directed at the affected pores, triggering a photoelectrochemical process that kills bacteria and reduces acne severity in the skin.
The overall treatment time is very quick and depends on the amount of acne being treated. Some patients have described the procedure as painless while others have experienced slight discomfort. Overall, majority of patients find the procedure to be very tolerable with minimal side effects.
Patients have seen optimal results when combining Q- Switched treatments with other therapies such as acne creams for a multifaceted treatment approach.
Patients may experience temporary redness following treatment. This side effect is temporary and will resolve itself within a few hours. Duality treatments have significantly decreased the appearance of acne and lessened the number of breakouts experienced by patients, revealing a clearer complexion and smoother skin.
